Your Instructor

Your Instructor, Dr. Archie Chen
As someone with a driven personality, forever hungry for learning, with a proud passion for piano and music education, I am actively involved in continually developing, growing, and maintaining prominent visibility in my scholarly and creative work. I have been the recipient of numerous awards, grants and fellowships, in recognition of substantial scholarship and artistic creation. Examples are the Arts Council of Ireland Grant for my research on Chopin (from a HIP perspective), the Tyrone Guthrie Centre Fellowship for recognition of my place as an Artist in Ireland and the New York Classical Music Society Artist of the Year, in recognition of my success in conceiving, designing the course, and creating in its entirety - the Dublin International Piano Festival, which has run for 5 consecutive editions. I am a highly capable & creative individual - as teacher, communicator, performer, collaborator, creator & developer of programs and events.
Lesson with Archie Chen. This was on the first day of the course and as a result I think I was at my most nervous for this lesson, but I enjoyed the lesson very much, particularly as Archie clarified something which has bothered me for a few years (I have occasionally received negative comments in the past for playing unsteadily). I also admired the way that Archie could instantly give witty and imaginative readings of specific passages, suggesting ideas I would never otherwise have imagined.
